    hey all,

    I was just wondering if Microsoft Office 2004 Professional Edition For mac will work fine on a blackbook (both the new 2.16ghz and the old 2.0ghz model).

    Its just that i can get it through my School at a great price.

    thanks

    if you are in school, you should most definitely get the student teacher edition. i think the only difference is the virtual PC, which is unusable or very bad performed.

    The Macintosh version will run fine under emulation, it loads up fairly quickly for me and I am running at 1.66GHz... I don't know when the universal binary version is coming out.

    Most likely you'll be given a choice... but you'll want to upgrade at the end of this year again to get a native (Intel) version of Office for your Mac.
